Ducky Shine version 2 - Page 59

post #581 of 931
I'm still using a Razer Lycosa but seeing pictures and videos of the Ducky Shine 2 with the Blue LEDs makes me really want one. It sounds like most people get Cherry MX Brown or Blue keycaps, it's hard to really know what my preference would be as I've never owned a mechanical keyboard. I like that it has memory and you can customize what keys are backlit (mine only does WASD plus ghosting). Looks like the websites to buy these are limited. Do most people settle for Cherry MX Brown or wait for the Cherry MX Blue to be in stock?

IMO you should try atleast a few different mechanical switches before buying a mechanical keyboard. For example I tried blacks and blues and ended up ordering shine II with browns. No regrets.

Well I would not consider it "settling" for browns, depending on your preference, they are both great.

Aside from the click sound, the blue has an extra bit of plastic that moves up and down within the switch. This causes the release point to be higher then the activation point. So effectively, the blue switches have to travel farther to do one on/off cycle then the other switches.. This could be a little awkward or fatiguing while gaming.

With the Browns (also Red and Black), the electrical feed back is more direct, you can teeter or float the key right around the on/off point, or re-strike the key before it has risen back to the top.

Both the Blue and Brown have a tactile bump that you can feel, although it is slightly more pronounced on the blues.

So aside from trying them both under actual conditions the brown seems to be the safest default choice.

I know a lot of people talk about blues because of the click, but that potentially could be annoying, the other choices still have plenty of clack to satisfy. Basically don't choose Blue just for the click sound, choose it if it suits you. (Primarily typing, data entry etc.)

Looking at this the wrong way. It could be a win-win for the both of you.

Read through the thread, this might helps some to remap their email button to something else lets say gmail.

dl autohotkey then watch this tutorial by someone else not me,
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UD_mry_DN-s&list=LLa1TEZKd1UUlno6GkXb5LHg&feature=mh_lolz

after u learn how to create ur script, type in the following which ever mail service you are using.

launch_mail::
run www.gmail.com
run www.hotmail.com
return

if you wish autohotkey to run on window bootup simply find the startup folder in ur os drive (mine is C:)
copy paste ur script as shortcut into the startup folder.

this working for me so far
